THE BLACK QUAD: an homage to Belgian brewing tradition, with a slight departure. Characteristic of the style are notes of caramel, candi sugar, and dark fruit. Our addition of premium Belgian Black Malt adds a subtle component of dry roastiness for a deliciously dark complexity. 22°

Bottle - thanks Sean! Pours clear deep ruby-black with a small light brown head that dissipates with good lacing. Aroma is yeas, spices, dried fruit, molasses. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, ABV well masked throughout. Very tasty beer.

Pershing (524) - Garland, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
This beer poured jet black with decent tan head. The alcohol is not hidden very well in this beer but once you swollow the first sip it gets much better with a smooth velvety mouthfeel. I could not detect much aroma at all and was sort of confused with the style name. Essentially a Quad with black patent or chocolate malt. Finishes with an urge for more.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12oz bottle. Deep black pour, slight head. Nose is slightly metallic with roasted malt, toffee, and dark fruit. Lots more dark fruit in the flavor, toffee, and some alcohol burn.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Central market bottle. Wow, pours like a porter but a small head. Aroma is nice: fairly sweet, both malt and sugar. Big malt flavor and sweetness in the flavor but not really well strung together. The booze is a little noticeable too. Fine though.

rougeau13 (2594) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Deep-almost opaque-, clear, brown-red with a tan head. Lacing is very light. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, banana, and alcohol. Tastes sweet and fruity, and yeasty with light alcohol. Medium bodied, smooth, and a touch oily. Decent quad, and unusually easy drinking for the style and abv.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Dark fruits and lighter yeast esters (banana), molasses, a hint of roasted grain, chocolate, tar, a speck of citrus, spices, and generous ethanol in the aroma (increasingly so with temperature). Busy, but enticing. The taste is spicy and malty, with the roasted character and the darker fruity esters making more of a guest appearance. Viscous palate with gentle carbonation. I was looking forward to a more candi-sugar type of taste, but it was very good nonetheless.
